school choice vehicle effort fails

On Tuesday 2012.06.26 I put up an amendment to add S. 1409, commonly referred to as the Big Annual Tax bill, to the Sine Die resolution. This is an annual bill that clarifies tax law and to be honest, it contains a lot bad stuff.

Why would I do this? An amendment to add the school choice legislation would have been germane to S. 1409. This would have been an excellent opportunity for school choice. Unfortunately, we lost this effort, however, next year, if I return, I will use every opportunity to continue to promote educational opportunities for our children.

The Sine Die resolution is an annual resolution that determines what the General Assembly may take up after adjournment for the year. The Sine Die resolution requires a vote of 2/3rd of the General Assembly.
